JSC2010-E-173364 (24 Sept. 2010) --- The Orion crew exploration vehicle parachute assembly system team performed an airdrop test at the US Army Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona. It was the eighth test in a series of nine planned for the most recent design of the parachute system. The objective of the test was to evaluate the effect of allowing more air to flow through the parachute canopy in a two parachute cluster configuration, which may provide increased parachute stability. The air flow...

JSC2010-E-110907 (27 July 2010) --- The Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) Parachute Assembly System (CPAS) performed a successful airdrop test shortly after sunrise on July 27, 2010, at the US Army Yuma Proving Grounds in Arizona. This photo captures its steady descent under drogue chutes. The primary test objectives were 1) to measure the performance of a two drogue parachute cluster with one drogue skipping the second of two reefing stages and 2) to measure the performance of a two main...

The Orion Launch Abort System, or LAS, pathfinder returned home to NASA Langley in October 2010 for a short stay as it makes its way to NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The hardware was built at Langley and was used in preparation for the highly successful launch abort system flight test, called Pad Abort, at the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.

Engineers performed a series of tests in the 20-ft. Vertical Spin Tunnel recently that measured the aerodynamics of a 6.25 percent model of the Orion crew module with deployed drogue parachutes. The purpose of the test was to compare how the model performed in simulated flight versus a free-flight flight test in the tunnel. Credit: NASA
